Puerto Vallarta, Mexico - Discover, or re-discover, The River Café along the banks of the Rio Cuale in the heart of Puerto Vallarta from May 15th-31st. It is sophisticated fun, which includes enjoying live music in a romantic setting and pondering over the Restaurant Week 2011 menu, which includes four entrees.

Delicate Mahi Mahi encrusted with pecans served over a rich coconut sauce with vegetables, Filet Mignon with mushrooms, the rich Chicken Breast Portobello, a side vermicelli and all topped with sliced mushrooms and basil in a Reggiano Cream sauce or the towering Lamb Lasagna with mushrooms, goat cheese and a fresh tomato basil sauce.

Your dining experience can begin with soup, salad or risotto. The sweet ending consists of Créme Brulée or the decadent Chocolate Lava Cake.

Dinner is served from 4 until 11:30 pm and for $299 pesos you can savor some of restaurant's best recipes during the three course meal. Cuisine and nature meld exquisitely at River Cafe.
